  2. "Export for Screens" Control Dimensions and Resolution with Additional Profiles

    Have presets for other files just like "Adobe PDF Presets" so you can make definitions for a variety of file types.

    Alternatively build out the "File > Export > Export for Screens > Format Settings" to include things like resolution, image quality, etc. JPG 100 to JPG 20 should be in these settings and not in the "Export for Screens" dialog.

    This would address some of the issues with "Export for Screens" defined in the following thread: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2383113

    P.S.
    The IOS and Android presets are a good idea, but I would expand this so people can set up their own…

  4. Automation when opening multiple identical files for adjustments

    Have 5 identical DXF files that need to be opened at the same scale (1-1 mm) centered on a 12 x 24 artboard and saved out as PDF. Some way to record this like an action so that when the second file is opened the scale, rulers and save as options are preserved, and perhaps the save to location. Process perhaps 300 such files per year and this would be a huge time saver. Even if only a single file it would be nice to have some persistent parameters that could be set when opening a file such as always…

  5. Open a PDF with option to outline text

    Sometimes if you don't have a font, a pdf opened in Illustrator will result in boxes with "x"s in them in place of all the fonts. I know how to go into Adobe Acrobat and fix this. But.... Would be nice if Illustrator had a dialogue box when opening a PDF that gave the option to outline all text open opening.

  6. Fully support the SVG standard

    Illustrator can not read every SVG file. Some it doesn't read at all, some are imported only halfway or just completely messed up. There are issues with <use>, especially when used in herarchies. e.g. this file: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europaflagge#/media/File:Flag_of_Europe.svg There are issues with groups and masks and there are issues when units are missing e.g. from stroke widths. Also: SVG can have several attributes which Illustrator will delete when opening. Fully supporting the standard will enable people to have a workflow based on SVG files.

  8. Opening Multi-Page PDFs should have a larger preview or scalable preview

    The Open PDF window box that comes up when you try to open a Multi-Page PDF should have a larger preview. In the Open PDF window much of the text can be garbled, which doesn't help if you are not sure which page of a 49 page document you need to open.

  10. Allow the app to send projects to Sketch

    If I want to outline a drawing in Illustrator Draw but color it in Photoshop Sketch, right now I have to save it to the creative cloud as PSD. There should be an option where I can open the full project in Sketch app, in both apps where in Photoshop Sketch I can choose to either import a project from Illustrator Draw, or while in Draw I can export a project to Photoshop Sketch.

  11. Wrong exported image size if artboard coordinates are float

    AI 21.1.0 macOS.

    In attached AI file there are 1 artboard if you just export it for Screens you will get an image size 105px × 104px, however in AI it's sized as 104x104px.
    Check that X coordinate of artboard is 172.34 px, so it's float. Just change it to 172px and re-publish and image will be 104x104.

    So, coordinates of artboard should affect into output png image.

    ALso, should be related too:

    Hi,

    If you will export artboards in any fractional scale or by specifying height and width you will get correct output.

    The best way to not get an extra pixel is keep your artboard coordinates in integers. You can achieve that by changing the reference point of artboard to top left and typing in the nearest integer or do Make Pixel Perfect(Object > Make Pixel Perfect). If size of your artboard is increased please manage that accordingly and export.

    Thanks & Regards

  12. Export to SVG, export page knockout groups.

    Page knockout groups seem to be ignored when exporting to SVG. You can manually change the knockouts to cutouts, for example using pathfinder divide and deleting the unwanted parts, but would be nice if you didn't need to.

  14. Export for Screens, CMYK to RGB

    When working in a CMYK Illustrator file, the Export for Screens function currently creates CMYK jpgs. Since it is for screens, it should convert to RGB. Or at least there should be an option to convert the color mode for the exported files.

    In a package design project, the files are primarily for printing, but digital mockups are a secondary purpose. So it is necessary for the CMYK color mode to be converted to RGB. Export for Screens seems like it should inherently create RGB files.

  16. "Asset export" - changing object not updating it in export

    Hello,

    In this video Export assets for web and app design | it's all like perfect - after changing object color - it's will be updated too in asset export, yes...
    But in real life I want not just change a color, I want to made much more changes, just by adding new polygons path, and so - it's will not update asset at export. Because only what I've selected before and dragged into asset will be updated.

    What needs to be done - if I right click on polygons which already "connected" with asset for export - in menu…

  18. Assets panel multiple selection with just mouse

    I want to use mouse and "Ctrl" to select assets I want to export in Asset Export panel. But I can't do that. Mouse works only as per 1 selection. Yes, I can hold "Ctrl" and click on different assets or use Shift to select some, but that not useful for me. Sometimes I want to select big groups of assets located at the beginning and end of the assets list, so I just want to hold "Ctrl" and play with mouse easily and fast by selecting any items.
    ****, it's like you just holding "Ctrl" and selecting folder with…

  20. Import all pages at once from PDF file (that doesn't have illustrator embeded)

    I'm working at prepress for 20 years.. and verrrry often i need to open PDF files to correct some mistakes on many pages.. (like add bleed, or move all elements away from edges...

    it would be cool if illustrator would allow to open all pages at once for multipage PDF files..

    Ok, i know that i can edit page by page... or i can open one page, than save as with different name AI file, than open all other pages and copy content to that first saved AI document... but thats not cool for 8 page brochure..

    thank you
